Fair Trade products used at St John's Lodge Windermere bed and breakfast b&b

St John's Lodge, Windermere b&b, serve Café Direct, Fair Trade, tea, coffee and chocolate at breakfast time. Fair Trade tea and coffee is also available in all the bedrooms at this Windermere bed and breakfast. Sue gave her thinking behind using these Fair Trade products at her Lake District b&b.

"Fair Trade is about guaranteeing growers in developing countries a fair and stable price for their crops so that they can make a decent living. Here at our Windermere guest house we feel we should do our bit to support these small-scale growers and give them and their families a chance to build a future without poverty. That's Fair Trade and we hope you agree".

Barry added, "I know there is some controversy over the carbon footprint associated with some Fair Trade products.  However we still believe it is better to help those less well off than ourselves to build a sustainable future".
